Killer, in that it will kill the shit out of this site after working for 2 days in a row.

No, that would be the current server we're on, as we all saw over Labor Day Weekend.

Nice thing about this upgrade is that since we're moving to new hardware, we're gonna get everything working on the new server before updating the DNS to point the site there. So there shouldn't be any real downtime on the site here. There may be a few forum posts lost when the migration takes place, but that's about it.

CPU

$232

MOBO
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-189-_-Product
$70 (this can actually do 1000Mbps ethernet, lol)

RAM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...20(2%20x%204GB)
$160

HDD (didn't say how big, but let's assume 1TB)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...20and%20higher
2x $70 (need 2 for RAID)

=$602

oh god my estimating skills are awesome, i should be a contestant on the price is right

i guess you'd need a case and PSU too, but since you don't need it to drive a gfx card you could either cannibalize something from a flea market or get a $20 bare-bones case w/ power supply.

The upgrade is free. My monthly hosting costs are the only thing going up, and not by much at all. But compared to what we're currently on, this is a big upgrade for the site.

Precisely. I've been on this same server for ages, so it's definitely time to upgrade.

I'm building a massive arcade table, but I'm also thinking of building a tiny one, like in a nightstand. Those kinda parts would be good for it.

I used to have a huuuuge server computer here. Thing was slightly larger than a mini-fridge. It had four 1-meg ram modules that were each about 12" x 4" (slightly larger than the biggest graphics cards on the market today).

I would use it as a chair. Wish i'd kept it.
